    The Florida website has quite a bit of faq and what not. Just google florida ccw and you will find the site.

    Florida is a conceal only state. If you print, it is not concealed, so just make sure you dont print.

    Only partially true. Please check with the state website as the statement about "printing" is false.

    In Florida, concealed MEAN CONCEALED!!! Just got back from there and did some advanced handgun training at the Gander Mtn Academy while there too. Keep it on you in the car, unless you have a glovebox that locks.

    I live in Tampa, FL. You can carry concealed or leave it in the car in a closed console or glove box. Not necessarily locked. Make sure not to keep it where you put your registration and insurance. Concealed BTW means Florida must have reciprocity with your state's CCW.

    I live in Palm Beach, Florida. Florida and Tennessee do have reciprocity agreement. The best piece of advice has been stated several times. Go to the website and read up for yourself as much as you can. There is no print (Even though the gun is concealed it presses against the close enough to be seen as a gun) law in Florida but dealing with local police any where you want to avoid issues so it is best to avoid Printing.

    I was fixing to ask what print was.. but that makes sense. I'm going to Florida on my honeymoon and planned on taking my gun for protection.. but it looks as if I'll be carrying in my glove box

    what is printing

    Printing is the image of your gun appearing on your shirt or clothing

    Our state legislation had a bill that passed that was originally open carry however it was dumbed down to if you bend over in a store and your shirt comes up and weapon is visible it is not brandishing! Gotta love politicians.....
